Tyler Perry's House of Pain

Tyler Perry -- the dude who earned $125 mil between June 2007 - 2008 and produced shows like "House of Payne" -- is being accused of deadbeat-ism over his house.

Several contractors claim they did work on Perry's 30,000 square foot palace overlooking the Chattahoochee River in Atlanta, only to be stiffed. They've slapped a lien on Perry's home and business.

Perry, whose dad ironically was a contractor who was always broke because he didn't get paid what he was due, claims the work he didn't pay for was either shoddy or undocumented.

Perry told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, "There's a Tyler Perry tax that's put on things."
